Boris Karlov

Thank you again Susan J. for the following Folk Dance “Tidbit”:

When people hear the name “Boris Karloff”, they usually think of the English actor who took this as a stage name, and used it in his roles in horror movies.

But the REAL Boris Karlov was an accomplished Bulgarian accordianist, who recorded a lot of wonderful music on the Bulgarian record label HORO (this means “circle dance”, and in Cyrillic is looks like XOPO.) See this entry for information on this musician:
